  • (1888PressRelease) October 26, 2015 - The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation is now the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation! The new name is more inclusive of all types of neuroendocrine cancer and better reflects the current medical terminology for the disease. It is important that all those who are affected by neuroendocrine cancer, as well as all NET researchers, feel that they are part of the community.

    Along with the name change of the organization, the NET Research Foundation launched a new website, logo, and brand identity. The goal is to provide a simple, easily navigable website in order to deliver the resources and information patients and researchers need in a quick and efficient way.

    The mission of the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation is to fund research to discover cures and more effective treatments for carcinoid, pancreatic, and related neuroendocrine cancers. To achieve rapid discovery of cures, the NET Research Foundation directs its donations to fund breakthrough scientific research of neuroendocrine cancers. Since its inception, the NET Research Foundation has awarded over $10 million in large-scale, multi-year research grants to leading scientists at renowned research institutions, and is actively funding research at 7 of the top 10 U.S. cancer centers.
